After a sweltering week of heat and humidity, it’s finally going to cool off on Saturday & Sunday. Which is good, because this weekend is our 15th & final Backyard BBQ at our house. We’ve had a great run, but it’s time to say goodbye to this annual shindig!
If you’re looking for a few other things to do this weekend, here’s a couple of suggestions:
Kick the weekend off with an ice cold beer, some great food, & some kick-ass tunes from the Freezers!
They’re playing Whiskey River Bar & Grill on Friday night, starting at 8pm. They play all your favorite songs from the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s & 2000’s!

On Saturday, it’s the yearly Poker Ride. Sign up at Angry’s Way Out starts at 10am, with kickstands up at 11am sharp.
